John Guzman was a jack of all trades. At a young age, his first job was a mortuary assistant. Throughout the years he was a farmer, a foundry worker, a boxer, a race car driver, a crew leader, a spanish radio broadcaster, and a supervisor at a golf course. His favorite things were watching westerns, working in the yard, and building things. The most important title was a husband for 63 years, father, grandfather, and great grandfather, and uncle. He will be missed! May his soul rest in peace.
